MANCHESTER United skipper Wayne Rooney believes his side blew a huge chance to win the FA Cup after succumbing to Arsenal at Old Trafford on Monday.

United boss Louis van Gaal insisted in the build-up to the quarter-final tie that a top-four finish was more valuable than lifting the FA Cup, a competition Rooney is yet to win.

“I want to win the cup for, and with, the team,” said Rooney. “That’s why it’s so sad for us to get knocked out. We knew we’d have a great opportunity if we’d won on Monday night.”
